In this webinar Organix Solutions will present their system of collecting source separated organics (“SSO”) where organics are conveniently “co-collected” in the same bin with refuse. Organix Solutions will also provide a brief overview of their “layered approach” for harvesting the value of organics by using co-collection programs in combination with flexible material processing systems.

In addition, two communities will present their use of the Organix system to collect and manage organics. The city of Wayzata, MN will describe how they introduced and got their residents to embrace this approach and the city of Boulder, CO will share how their recently introduced commercial organics recycling program is contributing to their zero waste initiative.

He has a degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado and a master’s degree in Human Dimensions in Natural Resources from Colorado State University where his research was focused on connecting children to nature. Over the past 10 years Mark has educated the greater Boulder community on the importance of recycling and composting (and how to do it!) through his work with Eco-Cycle, the Boulder County Sustainability Department, the Boulder County Recycling Center and in his current role with the City of Boulder where he helps businesses comply with the City of Boulder’s Universal Zero Waste Ordinance (UZWO). Mark’s presentation will focus on the commercial aspect of the UZWO and more specifically on the recently implemented Green Bag Giveaway program which supplies free compostable bags to local businesses to help with their zero waste efforts.

Gallup’s presentation will cover the history of Medina’s program, how Medina got started, how Medina implemented the city-wide changes to the Blue Bag program, and address Medina’s successes and challenges throughout the process.
